CALIFORNIA EXHIBITS SPOON INDEX

California is the most populous state in the USA and the third largest by size.
The diverse geography ranges from a huge coastline to large interior deserts,
huge mountain ranges and some of the most fertile valleys in the world (largest fresh fruit producer)
as well as the highest and lowest points in the continental USA (excluding Alaska).

After the discovery of gold in 1849, the population grew rapidly and California became the 31st state in 1850.
